This argued Frans van Nispen tot Pannerden, Assistent Professor of Public Administration during the third lecture of the series of lectures of the Montesquieu Institute. The crisis we are facing is a debt crisis in the euro zone, but the currency of the euro itself is not in crisis. The exchange rate of the European currency is in fact fairly stable and inflation the euro area is not out of control, stated Van Nispen. In response to questions from the audience, Frans van Nispen tot Pannerden clearafied the complex political, economic and fiscal choices of political actors in times of economic misery.
